CHRISTMAS BLOG CAROLING 2010 – MY FAMILY’S FAV

Thanks again to Footnote Maven for the invite to participate in Blog Caroling 2010. A couple of years ago one of my co-workers heard me talking about this song and me saying how hard it was to find the CD. I don’t know how she did it but she found the CD and gave it to me as a gift, which I was most grateful. This is one of my family’s favorite Christmas Song and now that I have the CD […]

STILL WONDERING, WAS MY ANCESTOR A WITCH?

This is a repost from last year. I will continue to post every year until I have the answer to my question! I have been researching my ROBERTSON line for some time now, and when I read this story I thought “This could be one of my ancestors.” I found the story interesting and I hope you do too!! On October 1, 1871, Nancy ROBERTSON a freed slave, was found dead at her home in South Bossier Point. Mysteriously, the […]

SURNAME SATURDAY: MY NOLA UPDATE!

I previously did a post with all my Ancestors Surnames that I knew about up until this point. I have some more information that I want to share. Looks like my Robertson Line used two other Surnames: Robinson and Roberson. I knew about the Roberson Surname because on the 1870 Census the Family was listed as Roberson, but by 1880 and beyond it was Robertson. Now on the 1870 Census there was a Charity Roberson that was listed as a […]

CARINVAL of AFRICAN AMERICAN GENEALOGY: GRANDMA HANDS! GRANDMOTHERS and THEIR INFLUENCE on the FAMILY!

I don’t remember my maternal Grandmother Odessa Amos(Big Momma to some but I like calling her NaNa). She passed away when I was 2 years old. My Mom and Dad worked the evening shift and NaNa Odessa babysat for my brother and I a lot, especially since her and my Mom lived across the hall from each other in the Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago, IL. I’m quite sure we spent many evenings in the kitchen talking, sharing recipes, and […]

SURNAMES

I have been Researching my Louisiana Line for over a year now and have never posted the Surnames and the information that I have about each one. So here goes: Robertson: Ben Robertson born in GA about 1844. Married Mandy Bryan(t) around 1865 and had 11 children: Charity?, Henry, Georgia, Jennie?, Minerva, Thomas, Cornelius, Emma, Mary, Babe, Amanda, Martha, and Annie(Charity and Jennie are not for sure known children of Ben and Mandy, but show up on the census in the […]

Carnival of African American Genealogy: Restore My Name

I have been researching my Family’s History for a short period of time(One Year) and truly love being a part of the Genealogy Community. With the showing of Face of America on PBS and Who Do You Think You Are? on NBC, I am hoping that it will spark a lot of new interest in Genealogy and there become some new Researchers and some new Family Trees going up that will allow more Genealogical connections. There are so few African […]
